I have a 66 chevelle. I notice in the November issue of chevy high performance magazine, that moroso has a pan for gen v engines. Will this pan work in my chevelle? Part # 20408. I also read in the same issue that GM performance parts has a 4 quart oil pan. Can anyone in the chevelle world help me ? Tank You.

Both of these pans will clear your crossmember but on the 64 to 67 chevelles the inner tie rod ends hit the oil pan a little so you will need to put a dent in each side of the pan once the engine is installed for clearance.

Bobs right. I have the Moroso which has to be modified if you want to keep the power steering form canting your engine to the left and right.
Don't know about the GM pan.

What about the oil pan in the GMPP catalog, part no. 10185076 ? Is this the same one that ya'll recommended from Apple Chevy? It says its a five quart for GEN V & VI engines and fits early-model Chevelle and Camaro.

The Apple chevy pan is a modified 6 quart pan off the crate engine they cut and weld a piece to clear the crossmember, this was before the new GM oil pan. I don't know if the new GM pan will clear the 64 to 67 steering tie rods.
